Corvette Stingray Gets 29 MPG EPA Rating

General Motors has announced that the EPA has granted the new 2014 Corvette Stingray its EPA estimated fuel efficiency ratings. The EPA has given the car efficiency estimate of 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on highway. GM says that drivers who use the Eco-mode will be able to achieve 30 mpg on highway.

Eco-mode is a user selectable mode for 7-speed manual versions of the Stingray that deactivates four the eight cylinders of the engine when power is not needed. Eco-mode is constantly active on automatic equipped Stingrays unless the driver is using the sport shift paddles on the transmission.

GM says that the MPG estimates make the Stingray the most fuel-efficient Corvette ever produced while it offers more power than previous versions. The Corvette will be available this fall in coupe form with the convertible coming by the end of the year.
